INFO: Dreams about being abandoned with information about similar dreams such as desertion, being jilted and dereliction. The psychological and mystical meanings of dreams about abandonment.

Psychological Meaning: Abandonment Dream Meaning

This dream may express your unconscious emotions of being forsaken. Examine the reasons for this feeling. Do you feel that people emotionally neglect you? Perhaps you harbour feelings of resentment such as an unresolved problem from childhood? The dream also may be saying how you need to express your feelings and be understood by others.

On another level, the dream may say that you need guidance with some life issue. For example, you hope for an ‘authority figure’ to help you take control of your life. Many people have this dream after the death of a loved one. Grief brings a strange mixture of emotions: anger, resentment, depression, panic and abandonment. These feelings are all part of the healing process.

Mystical Meaning: Abandonment Dream Meaning

To abandon something unpleasant indicated good financial news ahead. But the omens are bad if you abandon someone or something you cherish – destiny sees troubled times. However, if you are the one abandoned then reconciliation will happen quickly.

    I had a dream about being abandoned at a grocery store far away from home. I waited for a very long time and finally, a clerk came to me and told me to stand in front of the store and wait and eventually, the manager would come out and tell me what to do. I told her that was a bunch of bunk and that I was not going to wait. I said that I wanted to see the manager immediately. I don’t remember what happened after that but whoever it was that brought me to the store ended up leaving me there.

    This connects very well with my real life. In fact, in my real life, I have no friends. Acquaintances I have will say they are going to call but they never do. In fact, everyone in the world that I know never does what they say they are going to do.

    Such is life. People fall through on everything they say. The spoken word is never taken seriously.

    It has gotten so that when someone says something, it goes in one ear and out the other because of my past experiences. Your interpretation is right on.

    I’ve had dreams about waking up to find that there was nothing in my room but the bed I was sleeping on. So I’d get up in a rush and open the door to my room only to find that there is nothing in the whole house but my bed. Along with the furniture my whole family was gone. This was a recurring dream and every time I’d wake up and find nothing but the bed I’d run outside my room hoping to find that my family had not abandoned me. My parents would always fight but I was a happy child loved and cherished by friends and family. I always made people laugh, myself included, and that made most people love being around me. So, in a way, this recurring dream is confusing to me.

      Your concerns about abandonment are probably more to do with worries about loneliness you are feeling now rather than during your childhood.

    I dreamed my mother abandoned my siblings and me and she didn’t tell anyone. But instead of being upset I was mad at her. I wanted an explanation, what does this mean?

    I dreamed I was being physically intimate with a guy in an abandoned house. The house looked the way it would after a fire. The only things left in the house were old pictures (photos were in black and white) of the homeowner. The guy in my dream is someone I have a close relationship with in real life.

    I had a dream that my husband abandoned me which is true in real life, I am trying to talk to him from some ones phone but he’s not responding. I am trying to talk to the person who is controlling him and she is not responding too. This is a real situation too. Do not understand things.

    I had a dream that that I was with a significant other. They were sick, I tried to help them. I was unable to help them and as a result we went to bed. When I woke up they were gone. I woke up all alone.
